After climbing Amasa Back there is a trail on the right that will take you to Jackson's singletrack. This trail hugs the slickrock bench above the Colorado River and brings you to the edge literally. There are sections of trail here that even experts will walk. Super steep switchbacks that are right on the edge of death or serious injury if not negotiated perfectly.Trail length is 2.2 miles.

Review: Careful of the river, I climbed Hymasa to Amasa and down Jackson. Dismounted frequently due to exposure...got to the bottom and the river had flooded the exit with 15' of water. My bike doesn't float so I had to hike-a-bike back up; not fun. I'd stick with Hymasa to Captain Ahab or Hymasa as an out 'n back. Both those options are epic!

Review: I rode this trail with my two teenage sons. It is definitely technical and pretty hairy in spots. We had to walk several rocky spots and descend a very steep, loose switchback. I'm not sure I'd choose to do this trail again.

Review: Very technical singletrack atop a slickrock bench above the Colorado River. Many drops and tight turns with some scary hairball switchbacks. Most will hike the gnarly sections and even that is a challenge.
